Welcome to another installment of 5 Questions with a 5-Year-Old. Today, Zoey chats with Mike Maihack, writer and artist of Cleopatra in Space from Graphix/Scholastic.
If you’re interested in Cleopatra in Space, you’ll definitely want to read our review of the first book: Target Practice. In short, you don’t want to miss this one. It’s fantastic.
A strong, spunky female protagonist. A sci-fi setting with historical flavoring. A good Indiana Jones style adventure. And a whole range of emotions–both expressed by the characters and elicited in the reader. What’s not to love?
- Cleopatra in Space, Book 1: Target Practice
- written and illustrated by Mike Maihack
- published by Graphix (Scholastic)
- Roar Score: 5/5
If the title doesn’t grab your attention, you might want to check your pulse. And if the cover doesn’t totally captivate you, then you might seriously be dead. Consult your physician.
This is a book that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. I was overjoyed when I heard that Scholastic had decided to publish it and give it a treatment that the story and art deserve. Cleopatra in Space is the creation of the awesomely amazing artist Mike Maihack — an artist we love so much in our house that I might border on hyperbole here. Apologies.
